The 9th Annual Lilac City Comicon is just around the corner.
Formerly known as Spokane Comicon, this year's event will take place at the Spokane Convention Center on Saturday May 30th. Over 120 exhibitors are set to attend, including professional local artists and businesses from around the Inland Northwest. Actor and Spokane native Steve Cardenas, who is better known as Rocky the Red Power Ranger, will be at the event, along with cast members from the SyFy television show Z Nation.
According to Lilac City Comicon founder and coordinator Nathan O'Brien, the goal of the event is to help promote awareness of local artists and businesses from around the Inland Northwest. Donations will also be collected for the Community College of Spokane Food Bank and the Catholic Charities of Spokane.
“It's not only our goal to make this show as fun as possible but to make it as affordable as possible for our community,” he said. “We would never want anyone to be denied an opportunity to attend our show because they can't afford it. That goes for all businesses, artists and attendees.”
All ages are welcome to attend the event.
